The England vs Bosnia and Herzegovina live stream today, Monday, June 3, is the first of two Euro 2024 warm-up matches for Gareth Southgate to test out his pre-tournament squad. The Three Lions boss must reduce his long list by seven to 26 players and will give opportunities for players to shine — watch it from anywhere with a VPN, potentially for FREE.

The teams are in and England go with blend of experience and players looking to impress, as Eberechi Eze, Cole Palmer and Trent Alexander-Arnold all start, the latter most likely in midfield. Marc Guehi comes in at the back next to Lewis Dunk, along with Ezri Konsa who seems likely to fill in at left-back. Kieran Trippier captains the side that also includes Jordan Pickford, Jarrod Bowen and Ollie Watkins. Harry Kane, Declan Rice, Jack Grealish and Adam Wharton are all on the bench.

For Bosnia, meanwhile, former Man City forward Edin Dzeko starts on the bench as new coach Sergej Barbarez names a youthful side that includes Anel Ahmedhodzic and Augsburg's Ermedin Demirovic as captain. Dario Saric and Jusuf Gazibegovic al start. Koln's Denis Huseinbasic would make his debut if he comes off the bench.

England will go into Euro 2024 as favorites for the title alongside France, with a squad full of promising young talent. First, though, boss Southgate needs to trim down his provisional squad, meaning youngsters such as Eberechi Eze, Jarrad Branthwaite, Jarrell Quansah and Adam Wharton are all likely to get a chance to impress at James' Park. Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw still aren't fit, while key player Jude Bellingham will be excused after his UCL final exertions for Real Madrid.

Bosnia and Herzegovina have won just three of their last 12 internationals and are on a four-game losing streak that included debilitating home and away Euro 2024 qualifying defeats to minnows Luxembourg. New head coach Sergej Barbarez will take charge of his first game as boss in charge of familiar faces Edin Dzeko and Sheffield United center-back Anel Ahmedhodzic.
